Quote of the Day

Bill O'Reilly says leftists are furious that he's won in the "war on Christmas."

"'Tis the season to be jolly, but not if you're a far-left loon ... And the Christmas situation is the best example of this. The SPs are furious that most stores no longer order their employees not to say Merry Christmas." -- Bill O'Reilly, on Tuesday night's "O'Reilly Factor"

Personally, we're just dying to know who these "SPs" (O'Reilly's shortening of "secular progressives") are. It doesn't help that O'Reilly didn't actually mention any, focusing instead, in his usual totally unselfconscious way, on people who said mean things about him. And once Bill does tell us who these dastardly individuals are, well, we'll do our part in fighting the "war on Christmas" -- we're going to run up to them and say "Merry Christmas" until they get really, really annoyed. Or something.
